European Football Poker Tour: Beginning of a unique event in Paris

From this Thursday, Paris will receive a unique event which will gather poker, football and charity. Baptized European Football Poker Tour (EFPT), this 100% poker event is, as a reminder, an idea of Philippe Gauthier who, after his passage in the foundation of Jean-Alain Boumsong, decided to continue in sports and charitable events in order to collect funds for charitable associations. The Aviation Club de France and its poker room will be the host of these series of unique tournaments which will take place for four days. The money collected during this occasion will be poured to three associations: L’Etoile de Martin, Neuf de Cœur et J’apprends. This event is sponsored by football celebrities like Bruno Solo, Jean-Pierre Papin, Raymond Domenech and Pierre Ménès, but other celebrities, whose names will remain surprises, also decided to get involved in this cause.

In the program of this poker tournament with charitable goal, there will be the classic Main Event which will be accessible with € 1,000 entry fee and the Tournoi des Légendes, a Side Event with € 500 of buy-in. The event will start on Thursday with the Day 1A of the Main Event, with the participation of two former football players while Bruno Solo will be the host of the Day 1B. On Sunday, June 2nd, amateurs of poker will be able to face Jean-Pierre Papin, Raymond Domenech and Pierre Ménes in the occasion of the Tournoi des Légendes. The organizers are expecting for a participation of more than 150 players for the two events.
